might remember them from last week. in 2005, think back to hurricane katrina. in 2001, president bush appointed joseph, the chief of staff in texas and the 2000 campaign manager, but no emergency management experience. under president bush, the number of political appointees went from 27-38. he brought in michael brown, his college roommate. now in 2003, michael brown took over fema. he also had no previous emergency experience, the u.s. commission of the international an arabian horse association which was his qualification. hurricane katrina hits new orleans, brown took control of the relief effort, but it was a disaster both literally and figuratively. you may remember president bush said, you're doing a heck of a job. it became clear that he could not handle it, and he was replaced by the coast guard, a career professional that handle the and a good job. of course, the katrina disaster was not all brown's fault. the appointment is an illustration of the problem, an increasing number of appointees, the lack of emergency management experience, layers of political appointees over car

, swiss re actually warned us of an east coast storm like sandy in 2006. after hurricane katrina, swiss re's head of catastrophe perils, andy castaldi, worried aloud about warming seas and more violent storms in the gulf. but, he told me: >> i'm also concerned about the new york bay and long island would be inundated by a flood, due to a category 3 storm. a storm surge could completely flood the airport at jfk. 13 feet of sea water is not out of or to 17 feet is not out of the question. >> reporter: so the blue is sandy's storm surge. we interviewed castaldi again last week, after sandy. >> that's the footprint of the storm surge that was produced by the superstorm sandy, as you can see in the center of the screen is john f. kennedy airport. now i'm going to toggle back to the coastal flood map that we had prior to the storm and you can see just about the same areas as the sandy footprint we knew was exposed to a storm surge. >> reporter: six years ago, you said that you thought that climate change was a major factor in recent storm activity. do you think that more today? >> i can't really
daniel christman used katrina as an example of how extreme weather can cause negative operational impacts to our military. in response to katrina the national guard mobilized 58,000 national guard members to the relief effort at the same time that 79,000 guard members were deployed fighting the war on terrorism. the generals pointed out that although louisiana's physical infrastructure did not hold, our national guard did hold. but the limits of even our exceptional national guard will be tested by these changes in extreme weather. and it is imperative that we prepare our emergency management and responders for a new normal of new extremes. climate change will also create new strategic challenges. climate events such as droughts and heat waves, floods and storms exacerbate political and military tensions in areas around the world with fragile governments and instability. this can result in violent conflict and in refugee problems. it is not just the shock of extreme weather that portends danger. as the temperature of the air and ocean steadily rises the amount of moisture in the atmospher
. but as you know at least in past storms like katrina and others, many of the people who were required to have flood insurance still didn't have it, and how we're going to deal with that issue is one of the issues we have to face. and second, will the flood insurance be adequate for the people who were there? now, those who paid flood insurance have a legal, binding commitment from the government to pay it, and that's going to happen. we're going to have to come up with the dollars for that. we don't know the numbers yet. we just don't know the numbers. some people estimate that over 100,000 homes are unlivable. 100,000 homes. that's probably 300,000 people, the the size of a major american city. but we just don't know yet because of the inspections going on. we know huge numbers of houses are water logged. are their electrical systems gone, has there been structural damage, that takes almost a house-by-house inspection to determine, and we don't know enough yet. but flood insurance will have to live up to its promises and its commitments. that's legally binding on the government. how it has t
billion. but, hey, that's chump change compared to the $80 billion that katrina is going to cost and the $50 billion that sandy cost. >> is there a down side? >> if you're on the other side of the barrier reflective waives, waives that reflect have the same amount of energy and could savage the neighboring areas. not to mention the fact that the shore fronts are not protected. long island the jersey shore you may have to use sand replenishment there because the storm barrier cannot extend 100 miles. that's not possible. >> if they came to you and asked for your recommendation you would say yes, you should do? >> immediately we have to set up a study group to look at the implications. >> study groups makes people's eyes glaze over. >> this is for real now. we're talking about people's lives, people's businesses, the economy of the area. and, look, new york city is dragging at the tail. other cities already bit the bullet. other cities have storm surge barriers. look at london st. petersberg. >> you mentioned that. but what about american cities? >> new orleans pro

with that hurricane. >> woodruff: comparisons being made to hurricane katrina, not only new jersey and new york. we also want to say this brings the electoral college projected total at this point-- it's early in the evening-- to 79 electoral votes for president obama 82 electoral vote for governor romney. we know we need 270-- they need 270 in order to become president. >> ifill: of course we have to talk about new jersey because david and mark, chris christie, the governor of the new jersey, royaled the wate a littlebit this week by actually having kind things to say about president obama, not that that accountedly the outcome in new jersey, a deeply blue state, but i wonder whether we're watching chris christie more closely. >> i think he did it for severe reasons. his state got whalloped. he was emotionally drawn as anybody in those circumstances. i don't think he was thinking of his future political process. i do think sandy had a political impact. i think the exit polls give some suggestion of that. and partly because they saw the president being effective, but partly because they saw him wor
